25 Facebook Pages Paraeducators Love to Like and Follow

What is Facebook?

Facebook is a social media platform that came out in 2004 from Mark Zuckerburg’s Harvard dorm room. It grew fast in popularity after it released to the public. Now Facebook has 2.23 billion active users. It is a company worth billions of dollars and the #1 social network.

Why is Facebook so popular?

Facebook allows users to sign-up and create profiles for free, to connect with friends, work colleagues, or people they do not know online through “friend request”. It allows users to share pictures, music, videos, and articles, as well as their thoughts and opinions with whoever they like. ‘Facebookers” can personalize their profiles, as well as like, comment and share each other posted materials.

You can even “LIKE” Facebook pages of your interest to receive updates, look at pictures, and comment on your favorite brands.

What is a Facebook Page?

According to Whatis.techtarget.com:

A Facebook page is a public profile specifically created for businesses, brands, celebrities, causes, and other organizations. Unlike personal profiles, pages do not gain “friends,” but “fans” – which are people who choose to “like” a page. Pages can gain an unlimited number of fans, differing from personal profiles, which has had a 5,000 friend maximum put on it by Facebook. Pages work similarly to profiles, updating users with things such as statuses, links, events, photos and videos. This information appears on the page itself, as well as in its fans’ personal news feeds.

How do I find Facebook Pages?

Directly from websites

Look up websites you use often and look for the Facebook logo. Most times the logo is found on the header, footer, sidebars, or all the above. This logo does one of two things. It is a Facebook logo that allows you to share the page you visiting on your Facebook page or it is a Facebook logo that takes you to the website’s Facebook page and you can “like” from there. Sometimes they have a Facebook widget on their sidebar and you can “like” without even leaving their site.

Facebook Dos and Don’ts for Paraeducators

The Last Thing Paraeducators Need to Know About Facebook Pages

The thing I want you to take away from this is that the Facebook page is a great way to engage with other paraeducators as well as a place for educational resources, ideas, and inspiration. 

So what this means to you, in your life as a para, is that now you have more free resources and support to help you and your students acquire information and learn. 

So here’s your next step as it relates to what you and I just shared. Please join A Para Pro Facebook page so I can be the one to provide resources to further your love for teaching and your students’ love for learning.

Let’s keep the conversation going.
